I just learned that Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, Indiana, will have an exhibit of Penny Sisto’s work beginning October 24, 2014, through January 10, 2015. www.carnegiecenter.org
I love her work, and have her “Madonna and Child,” which I acquired many years ago. I see the compassion in their quilted eyes and feel the warmth of their spirit… just as Sisto said on her web site about some owners of her quilts seeing and feeling.
Penny’s web site is http://www.pennysisto.com, where you can see photos of her work in her gallery section. You may see the compassion in their quilted eyes and feel the warmth of their spirit, too. This photo is of “Turquoise Belt,” one of her pieces from the Heartbeat 2011 series.

|Quilter, pattern designer, and dye artist, Nancy Rink, has had virtually all of her quilts stolen right out of her studio in Bakersfield, California, some time between 5:00 PM Friday 7/25 and 9:00 AM Monday 7/28.
Nancy’s quilts are her livelihood and as she says, “I have trunk shows booked at guilds and it makes it very difficult to give a trunk show without my quilts. ”
Nancy has posted images of the main quilts stolen here (there are probably more) just in case you see or hear of anything. Please call the BPD 661-327-7111 or 661-852-7850 if you see or hear anything suspicious.
Nancy is also offering a $1000 reward for whoever facilitates the return of her quilts. As Reported by The Quilt Show

Lorain County in northern Ohio is combining and embracing agricultural history with the beauty of a hand-made quilt. Follow the route to enjoy viewing an array of colorful and unique barn quilts that are replicas of traditional quilt squares. The quilt patterns, names, and origins all have some type of political, patriotic, and historical significance.
Here are just a few.

How would you like to own a quilt created by Libby Lehman, Caryl Bryer Fallert, or Judy Matheison? Now is your chance.
On April 7, 2014, The National Quilt Museum launched its 2014 Annual Benefit Auction. This year over 80 items will be auctioned with a combined value over $40,000. It will include quilts, quilt miniatures, sewing machines, gift baskets, notions, and much more. Items were donated by over 60 companies, guilds, and individuals passionate about today’s quilting community.
It is a two-phase auction that starts with online bidding. To participate in the online auction, simply go to www.quiltmuseum.org/auction. Participants will be able to bid immediately following a brief registration process. Online bidding will run through Wednesday, April 23rd at 10pm central time. The online auction system is highly dynamic, working similar to eBay’s platform. Bidders will be informed if they have been outbid at any point during the 16 days.
On April 24th, at 6pm, the Live Auction will begin. The auction will take place at the Convention Center in Paducah, Kentucky. Online bidders will be represented by a proxy at the live event. Each item will be won by the person offering the highest bid, regardless if they are in attendance. Typically, over 70% of items are won by online bidders that do not attend the live event; as such, everyone has a good chance to win.
The National Quilt Museum works to bring the work of today’s quilter to new and expanding audiences worldwide. It promotes the quilting community through exhibits, education, and advocacy efforts. The Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that receives over 80% of its funding through the generosity of the quilting community. The Annual Benefit Auction is the Museum’s largest annual fundraiser.
